Hi Prasad,another beautiful butterfly specie,but today the sharpness is a little poor,many times i don't what happen's...i dont' know how is a minimun distance to make a macro,maybe you must stay too distant and next crop the pic for a best sharpness result.Good luck,we need your contribute,your species are fantastics!! Luciano

This is one of the smallest butterflies I've seen, Prasad, and while I do have some shots of it, I'm not too happy with my own shots.
This is a very difficult macro, and you've done very well here.

Hi Prasad,

Commendable patience to capture these winged beauties...looks like you are gonna open your own gallery of Butterfly captures very soon...but this one would have been more interesting with a little post processing. i have tried a workshop..hope you will like it...
